who doesn’t like sex? i do! i love it…yet, will it ever answer such hunger in our hearts, minds and souls? this poem is my attempt to tackle the glory (and failure) of sex in our quest to connect in deep ways with others, usually opposite gender but not always…
what dreamers! We expect so much from sex,
hard-wired brains, gender utterly complex;
who put such ravenous hunger in our hearts?
who created chemical glue none can pull apart?
push, pretty budding nubs, insistently press,
stipple patterned aura, touched such tenderness,
steepled limbs sleek, brain-etched hungry shapes:
shadows hint at shy secrets, hidden landscapes.
blood riotously races, red ballon shatter-bursts,
love letters torn-open, kind contents never cursed;
who pulls pelvic levers, so body involuntary jerks?
who flooded both brains, chemicals swirl berserk?
beautiful this bond, man and woman God welds,
such union hints heavenly hope, holy glow beheld;
scriptural this statement, organic the appeal:
eternity heart-imprinted, God-signed and sealed.
God made male and female to be together. Because of this, a man leaves father and mother, and in marriage he becomes one flesh with a woman—no longer two individuals, but forming a new unity. Because God created this organic union of the two sexes, no one should desecrate his art by cutting them apart.” Mark 10: 9
